I am totally confused by this thread! Scaleback - what are you actually on about in the first post? Maybe it would be good to have an image or link to something.

You said: How many pages of code would the graphics and animation have taken to do on this? - Do what? You seem to be throwing a few completely mad threads around at the mo... maybe you need to think a little before posting or starting another new thread and ask 'does any of this make any sense to anyone else on this little planet?'.

Sorry. Sorry. My fault (I wasn;t trolling). But this is what I meant about how many pages of code would it have taken

Alright, it isn't a perfect simulation but it was the best I could do as it's supposed to be a simulation of Sinclair ZX81/Spectrum graphics and animation.
I didn't use a proper Sinclair computer, I used some modern photo/image editing software to get it as accurate as I could but I had to add music as the software I use doesn't have the option of adding Spectrum style sound effects.
As for the animation itself, I wouldn't have known where to start and I don't have the knowledge or have the required hardware.

No, they have trouble using the keyboard to access wikipedia. Maybe if they had a special one designed for paws?

with regards to the original post i'm going to hazard a guess at 1 page of code.
